What a shame, as you said it doesn't take much for an insurance company to write off a motor these days.
You or I could've repaired that megane for next to nothing with 2nd hand parts and got a tidy motor out of it..... or just a nice wedge in your back pocket!
When you factor in labour costs and the price of new parts it often comes to more that the bottom book price of a car. Hey they'd prob write off my 52 plate Lagy with the same damage as depreciation has hit hard on these cars. there is a 51 plate 1.9 dci dynamique with 98k going by me for £2495!! been there a while too so you could prob knock them down a few hundred quid. Shame I don't want another lol!!
